The train has very large viewing windows, allowing you breathtaking views of the scenery and the Great Wall even before you arrive at Badaling. Upon arrival at Badaling station (most passengers alight at this stop) make a left turn and walk 800 m to the Great Wall entrance.

'''Update July 2018:''' The North Railway Station is under construction and the S2 trains leave from Beijing Huangtudian instead. See [https://www.travelchinaguide.com/china-trains/badaling-station.htm Train Beijing-Badaling schedule]. There are a lot of persistent taxi drivers who will tell you that there is neither bus nor train to Badaling (or that if you take the next one you will have only very little time there). The Public Bus subsection above is still accurate.
